This scarf is for cold winter days. It wraps twice with an overhand tie for added warmth around your neck. I named it Tres Ripples because you work it in three single crochet stitches and three repeats to form three ripples! This is a very fast crochet taking approximately 20 hours to complete, including the fringing and beading!

Row 1. From third chain from hook(counting one on hook)working back loops across chain, *sc in next three chains, work 3 sc in next chain(top of ripple), 3 sc in next three chains, skip next two chains(bottom of ripple). Repeat** to last two chains. Skip next stitch, sc in last stitch bak loop. Ch 2, turn.
Row 2. Skip first two sc,working between sc of previous row(spaces),*sc in between next three spaces, work 3 sc in next space(top of ripple), skip next two spaces(bottom of ripple) sc in between next three spaces* repeat** to last two chains. Skip next stitch, sc in last stitch. Ch 2, turn.

Loop in half and with crochet hook, pull through stitches on one end of scarf, yarn over the end of halfed length of yarn and pull through loop, tighted loop. Repeat across 27 bottom stitches. Repeat for other end. Place beads on yarn using looped dental floss. Place yarn through loop, place bead on straight end and slide bead on yarn, remove dental floss.
